The ability to create assemblies of proteins with spacing on the nanometer scale has important implications for proteomics, biodetection, and self-assembly. Structural DNA nanotechnology has led to the creation of a variety of nanostructures which should be capable of serving as an addressable template for the creation of complex molecular assemblies. The goal of such systems is to be able to position proteins or other components in distinct patterns with precise spacing. These systems take advantage of the well-defined structure and spacing of DNA and use these properties to act as a template for secondary components in a bottom-up approach toward self-assembly. Previous work in this area has primarily focused on the use of chemical or structural modifications of the DNA template in order to attach or recruit proteins or nanoparticles. We have recently shown that a single polyamide-biotin conjugate is capable of binding to a DX array made from two tiles without any modification of the target DNA.
